Peking Duck House is a mainstay of New York’s eclectic restaurant culture. Established in 1980 under the name Beijing Duck, Peking Duck House was called Maple Garden before settling on its name three years ago at its current Midtown East location. Drawing an international clientele, Peking Duck House makes the finest in the popular Duck preparation that involves several important steps. First the bird is air pumped, then repeatedly spread with boiling water and carefully dried. Lastly the skin is rubbed with maltose and the duck is roasted in an oven until the meat is tender and the skin crispy. One duck can be shared between two people. Shark fin soup is another popular choice especially among Asian clientele. Fresh ingredients are used daily to deliver the best. Private or floor seating options are available. Two private rooms in the back accommodate up to 40 people. There is an 8 person minimum however to use these rooms; perfect for private parties.  A handful of Lazy Susans are arranged next to regular tables. Excellent service and delicious food go hand in hand at Peking Duck House.
